Hi. My husband and I are buying a house near Concord, NH. The heat bills that the owner's showed us for last year were very expensive. We want to get a pellet stove, but are so confused about which one to buy. Our new home is 1500 square feet dormered cape. There's no room to put the stove upstairs, so we will install it in the basement with proper venting for the heat to rise. We narrowed down our choices to the Hudson River Stove Works "West Point" for $2,100. Check it out at http://www.csnstores.com/Hudson-River-Stove-Works-West-Point-HRS1008.html . OR Summer Heat's 2200 sq foot Utility Stove for $1700 (http://www.lowes.com/lowes/lkn?action=productDetail&productId=41171-76845-55-SHP240L&lpage=nonehttp://www.lowes.com/lowes/lkn?action=productDetail&productId=41171-76845-55-SHP240L&lpage=none) Can someone help me compare the two stoves? I'm so confused and hear a different story from everyone. All I know is that I need a stove that won't nickle and dime us with repairs. We have the money to purchase the more expensive one, but don't want to throw away money if I can get the same thing for less. Thank you for your help.
